#Wikipedia - Edward Copleston (1776–1849) Bishop of Llandaff

According to the information about the painting of Mr Copleston, this picture can be copied to Commons. This is a lot of work and it involves copying a lot of information about this picture to yet another Wiki page. It has to be done "exactly right" because when you fail to do this, it may mean that the picture gets lost because of the not so obvious bureaucracy at Commons.

There are many pictures like this. It would be more convenient when Commons shares its meta data about media files with all the other projects. Moving an image to Commons would be nothing more than indicating the available for general use.

That would make much of the administrative hassle go away.
